"The Mass Casualty Report calls out the use of Non-disclosure Agreements (NDAs) that are often used to silence victims of gender-based violence. And it’s a topic that has boiled over into the Nova Scotia Legislature. While the NDP have introduced a bill that would end the abusive use of confidentiality agreements, the Progressive Conservative government has deferred the issue saying they’re looking to see what other jurisdictions are doing.
